BATESVILLE, AR (KAIT) – The United Way of Independence
County needs a few more elves this year to provide gifts for children in need.
This year, the United Way plans to help about 500 local
children through the Angel Tree Program.
Most of the banks and several businesses in Batesville have
set up trees displaying wish lists for the kids, who have all been nominated
for this service through the Arkansas Department of Human Services.
Deanna Green, the United Way's new executive director, says
what she needs now are more people willing to sponsor a child.
